This is a well thought out designer home in the Galway countryside. Find your way to mellow here looking out from the top floor onto acres of woods while in the luxury of a well thought out, beautifully fitted out large family home.

The space

The house is set in 5 acres of woods. It is a family home but works nicely for groups of civilised travelerss. No stags, hens, students.. sorry guys. I love this house too much

Guest access

It's all yours including the outdoors.

Interaction with guests

Our friends Lushka and Peter live in the annex on site and are on hand for anything you need but will not interrupt your stay...unless you need them.

Other things to note

We have three dogs. All are very friendly - if a bit dense. I'm afraid no other canine or feline are welcome as we cannot guarantee that the pack dynamics will work!

The dogs live outside - but will want in. That's up to you. No dogs on sofas though.

Finally - we have the best broadband available and on a good day it's good. On a bad day it's impossibly slow. So while you can always send emails fine you can't always stream films.

Guys... this is rural Ireland. There is no 2 mins to the shops. It takes about 10/15mins to get to our little village Kilcolgan. We are 14 miles from Galway. These are country miles and it will take you about 35mins to get to town from the house.

This house is perfect for a small group or large family. The furnishings are superb and it is very comfortable. Set in a lovely secluded location, the house is cleverly designed to catch the afternoon sun.

Fantastic house for a family celebration. Check in was easy with lushka on site to hand . Dogs were great fun for walks with the kids in the woods. Highly recommended!

This is a very spacious, nice and modern house. We stayed there with our three children and it was very comfortable. There are big sofas to relax or watch TV. The kitchen is very big and is very good equipped. The house is placed in the woods with big windows and a great view. Only the Wifi and cellular reception are very bad.

This house is beautiful, kids friendly, quiet and clean. The house is very clean. The location is great to visit cliffs of moher, Aran island, Galway, etc. the beds are firm and very comfortable to sleep. We stayed at 4 houses during our trip and this is the only house with the beds as comfortable as five stars hotel. The bed sheets and comforters are clean and comfortable. The kids love to play with the dogs and the cat. The communication was great. I love the check in and check out process. The only major problem we had was not able to turn on the heating. However Lushka gave us 2 portable heaters for us to use. We were worried about the cold but the comforters are enough to keep you warm the whole night. Lushka was there to answer all the questions and helped us with everything. There was no dryer in the house but Lushka offered us to dry our clothes. We didn't need to wash our clothes anyway. There was smell in the downstairs bathroom where my daughter and I stayed. Closing the bathroom door helped to block the moldy smell. Overall we enjoy staying this beautiful house. If we visit Ireland again, we will definitely stay here again.

This is a beautiful house - spacious, tastefully decorated and located in a quiet area. The care takers (Lushka and Peter) live in a house on the property and were always helpful throughout our stay. My kids loved the three dogs that are also on the property. This house was a good base to visit the Burren and Cliffs and the Galway area. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends and family.

A lovely house and grounds that will suit large families. Home from home. The only negative is the speed of the broadband - wifi is extremely slow.

Thanks, Andrew, Appreciate your feedback. Glad that you enjoyed it. I would refer you and any other potential guests to this on the advert: "Finally - we have the best broadband available and on a good day it's good. On a bad day it's impossibly slow. So while you can always send emails fine you can't always stream films." We have tried 6 providers, satellite, and politicians! But to no avail. On a good day it is as good as anywhere else in the world. On a bad day it is shocking.

This is our family home but we will be out of the country for the next couple of years. It seemed like an awful waste to have this fab house and to use it so little - so this is why its on air bnb. We hope you like it and the location. I know we do.
